McCORMICK, MARGUERITE M. A biograph- 
ical sketch of Marguerite AL McCormick need 




not be limited to a chronicle of births and mar- 
riages. Mrs. McCormick has done things. 
Above all, she has proven beyond a shadow of 
doubt that a woman can be equally successful 
in business and in caring for a home, for Mrs. 
McCormick does both — and well. The in- 
scription. M. M. McCormick & Co., on the 
door of Room 510, Real Estate Trust Building, 
gives no indication that the executive head of 
that concern is a woman, but such is the case, 
for MargTjerite M. McCormick is head of M. 
M. McCormick & Co. Mrs. McCormick has 
been active in the textile field for some time, 
both here and abroad. The firm she directs is 
a distributor of a number of commodities, in- 
cluding yarns, latch needles, soaps, oils, etc. 
The management of M. M. McCormick & Co. 
is such as to forever dispel the theory that 
business capability is a matter of sex. In per- 
son Mrs. McCormick is a denial of the truth 
of that time-worn argument that business robs 
woman of her femininity. She loves her work 
as a textile broker, but by no means has she 
lost the power to find rare pleasure in prepar- 
ing a delectable meal. Mrs. McCormick has 
had some success as a newspaper writer. Wel- 
fare work is her favorite form of recreation.

The Abram Cox Stove Company 

THE ABRAM COX STOVE COMPANY. At the time this country entered the War, in April, 1917, the 
Abrani Cox Stove Company was engaged in producing the well-known Novelty line of boilers, furnaces, 
ranges and stoves, and Fortune gas ranges and gas water heaters, the only product this company had manufac- 
tured since it was established in 1847. In a very short time after the declaration of war it was realized that 
this company must adjust its production to do all possible toward accomplishing the one purpose then interest- 
ing every American ; "To win the war." 

The first step in this direction was the supplying of room heaters to the various cantonments, in the 
earlv Fall of 1917. Then heaters were used to heat the various cantonment buildings and were used in large 
numbers. They provided ample healthful heat for the "boys." All goods ordered by the Government for this 
purpose were manufactured and shipped on the dates specified by the Government. 

At the same time their manufacturing department made a careful survey of the plants and equipment to 
ascertain what portion could be utilized in producing war material, should it be required. Upon the completion 
of the survev it was decided to devote all of the plant and equipmen; ]iossible to Government work. 




The Abram Cox Stove Company. Philadelphia Plant 

The two plant? of the Abram Cox Stove Company consist of the Philadelphia plant, which is a five-story 
building, covering the block bounded by American, Dauphin, York and Phillip Streets, with a siding from the 
Philadelphia and Reading Railway, and the plant at Lansdale, Pa., consisting of nine buildings, situated on he 
Bethlehem division of the Philadelphia and Reading Railway, covering a plot of ground approximately 500 f iet 
along the railroad and 400 feet deep, all equipped with the latest foundry and shop methods to produce a stricdy 
high-grade product. The combined plants have a floor space of a half million square feet and a capacity of 
one hundred tons of castings per day. 

Shortly after supplying the room heaters to the cantonmen's, they received orders for supplying furnaces 
and ranges in the homes then in course of construction by the Emergency Fleet Corporation, and practically all 
of these homes in this locality and the surrounding section are equipped with "Novelty" apparatus. At the same 
time many hundreds of heating stoves were being shipped to various shipyards, munitions and ordnance plants 
in various sections of the country, all deliveries being made on the dates specified by the Government. To further 
assist the Government in securing the supplies required for war work, they arranged, in conjunction with their 
customers, to only supply their heating appliances where absolutely required, in order to devote as much of their 
equipment as possible to Government requirements.

The Abram Cox Stove Company 

At about this time they began to receive orders from various shipyards for castings for ship parts, from 
anchor works, for chain dies, castings to be used in ordnance buildings, parts for nautical instruments, equip- 
ment for powder mills, orders from other shipyards for torpedo-boat fittings, all of which were delivered on 
or prior to specilied dates. Various other manufacturers, having heard of the excellent quality of their castings, 
sent them orders for machinery to punch ship plates, parts for nitrate plants, castings to repair Government 
' automobile trucks, ordnance machinery, airplane parts ; in fact, practically every branch of war work requiring 
gray iron castings was represented in the orders they received. In the way of assisting in producing foodstuffs, 
Abram Cox Stove Company supplied castings to several manufacturers of agricultural machinery. 

By the early part of 1918, practically the whole of their Lansdale plant and the greater portion of the 
Pliiladelphia plant were devoted to helping win the war.. They also furnished many thousand airplane marker 
bombs for a large local concern, where they were machined and furnished for army ordnance. One of the orders 
received was for a number of ethyline tubes to be us;d by one of the arsenals for making "mustard gas." 
These tubes weigh about fourteen hundred pounds and are nearly ten feet long, about fourteen inches in 
diameter and one inch thick. In order that they would properly perform the work required of them, it was 
necessary that the castings should be free from all flaws and defects. After carefully testing the iron used in 
the work, the arsenal officers awarded them the order for these castings. In exactly one week after receipt of 
the order, they had made pattern core boxes, necessarv flasks and produced several castings of a piece that it 
was thought could not be produced in a very much longer time. 




The Abram Cox Stove Company. Lan^da'e Plant 

The Abram Cox Stove Company also were successful in locating a machine shop with an available 
lathe large enough to machine the flanges of the tubes, which measured twenty-two inches in diameter, and 
rearranged their shape to accommodate this casting. These tubes were well under way when the signing of the 
armistice made it unnecessary to complete the work. One other line of war activity, which was also brought 
to a finish before the completion by the signing of the armistice, was the preparation to produce Newton-Stokes 
trench mortar shells in large quantities. Much time and effort had been spent and a very considerable amount of 
expense incurred by this company in devising and perfecting a method of producing these shells rapidly and 
accurately, and experiments proved the method a success, but the termination of the war made further work in 
this line unnecessary. 

Now that the war is won. it must indeed be gratifying to this big stove concern to look back over the 
period in which they were doing every possible thing to help win the war. overcoming what appeared to be 
insurmountable difficulties, that the boys at the front could have the full, whole-hearted support of those who 
were charged with the responsibility of supplying them the necessary munitions and supplies, that they might 
again prove to the world that the United States never enters a war until forced to do so, and always wins. (This 
article is accurate in every respect, having been attested by the Ordnance Department to which it was submitted.)

The Richard's Manufacturing Corporation 




The Richard's Manufacturing Cxirp n Building 



WM. W. RICHARDS, President and Treasurer 
GROVER C. RICHARDS, Vice President. 
MARTIN L. STAHL, Secretary. 

About April 1, 1917, a representative of the 
Quartermaster Department, Philadelphia Depot, 
called on the Richards Manufacturing Corporation 
and asked if they were prepared to make tents and 
equipment for the War Department. They told him 
their place was too small (at that time located at 
Fourth and Callowhil! Streets) and did not think 
they could handle any large tents. He suggested 
that they could make small wall tents and flies and 
advised them to take a small contract, as it was 
their patriotic duty to do so in case of war. 

Mr. Grover C. Richards, Vice President, called 
on Colonel Hirsh, Purchasing Ofticer of the Schuyl- 
kill Arsenal, Philadelphia, and received a contract for 
3000 wall tent flies, he requesting them to hurry this 
contract along and see how quickly they could make 
deliveries. Though badly handicapped by not having 
a factory that was properly equipped with elevators 
and facilities for receiving and delivering material, 
the contract was finished ahead of the specified time. 

The ne.xt contract was for 6000 small wall tent 
flies. This contract was finished and delivered ahead 
of time. 

The third contract, for 7000 wall tent flies, was 
delivered on time, though there were delays owing to 
having to wait for material, as the Government could 
not supply them with the duck as fast as needed. 

A small contract for 500 storage tent flies, re- 
ceived in February, 1918, was delivered on time. 

The next contract was for 2500 latrine screens. 
Some difficulty was experienced with this work, as 
the screens were 55 feet long and the workrooms 
were only 50 feet long, but a way out was found and 
the work finished on time, which was about June 1. 
1918.

By this time, June, 1918, they had secured larger quarters, at 948-952 North Eighth 
large factory, where larger contracts could be handled more efficiently. The building I 
55 feet wide and 85 feet long. 

With this greatly increased capacity, a contract was received for 1000 large paulins from the War Department, 
July, 1918. These paulins were made of very heavy duck, and their size made them very hard to handle. Labor was 
scare, and applicants for work demanded very high wages. The goods supplied were not of the proper width and had 
to be cut and bited on every cloth. The government was short of this material and could only supply it in small 
amounts. However, all but two of the paulins were completed at the time the armistice was signed and the contract 
cancelled by the Government. 

About September 1, 1918, a contract was received from the Marine Corps for 6000 wall tents. They wanted a 
contractor to do this work who had a large factory where he could store the material. The Richards Manufacturing 
Corporation had the space, and all of the material for this contract (about 300,000 yards of 12-ounce khaki duck) was 
stored here. It was found necessary to put in extra machinery to take care of this work, as the contract was to be 
finished by February 22. Government wages were paid on all previous contracts. It was decided to try the piecework 
system on this contract. They found that plan the better, as the operators did more work and made larger wages than 
when working by the per diem scale. In order to further increase the production they decided to pay a bonus. This 
plan was a success, as all workers managed to produce enough to get the bonus. Labor troubles developed, owing to 
the foreman having to reprove a few of the workers for doing careless work, and when the contract was almost finished 
these careless workers induced a number of the operators to strike, demanding that the foreman be discharged. The 
foreman, however, was retained and other workers put in the place of those who had gone out on strike. This caused 
delay, and the contract was not completed until about a week after the specified time. The Governrnent was considerate 
and seemed to realize their position and granted an extension of two weeks' time for the completion of this contract. 
This was the last contract for the Government. 

Since completing this contract this firm has continued to make tents, tarpaulins, wagon, autornobile and truck 
covers, horse covers, moving covers, covers for all kinds of machinery, furniture pads, bags of all description and canvas 
specialties such as carpenters' nail pockets, mechanics' aprons and tool rolls.

Chester Steel Castings Co. 



CHESTER, PENNA. 



During the world war and after our entrance into same in April, 1917, the efforts of the Chester Steel 
Castings Company, of Chester, Pa., were devoted entirely to supplying manufacturers throughout the country 
w^ith steel castings to be used in the construction of railroad work and various kinds of machinery, all entering 
into the production of work in turn for the Government. The Chester Steel Castings Company furnished during 
the war the water-space frames for all the locomotives built in the district. An enormous undertaking, when 
it is remembered that the work required turning the water-space frames out on a quantity basis; many were the 
difficulties to be overcome to meet the schedule — -twenty frames per day. Their furnaces were equipped for 
melting by gas; due to the great shortage of coal, they found it would be impossible for them to run under such 
conditions. Therefore, they immediately made a turnover from gas to oil, and in order to insure a sufficient 
amount of oil on hand to meet the government's requirements, it was necessary to construct four concrete tanks, 
with a capacity of 35,000 gallons each for storage purposes. After this was accomplished, they again turned 
their efforts along the lines of production and furnished the Government and our Allies w^ith sufficient castings 
to construct engines for France and Great Britain at the rate of twenty frames per day, including many miscel- 
laneous parts. Their next step along these lines was to supply the Government with 1500 frames to be used 
in the construction of Pershing engines to move supplies f:om France to our army and our Allies. The Chester 
Steel Castings Company was requested to produce these frames at the rate of ten per day, which they did. In 
addition to this, and at the same time, they produced frames to be used in the construction of gasoline engines 
for France, making a total production of frames of twenty per day. About this time ihey w^ere called upon by 
the Ordnance Department to help out in the production of recoil bands, sleeves, trunnions, counterweights and 
miscellaneous castings to be used in the construction of guns ranging in size from eight inches to fourteen

inches, and they kept on producing this class of work until the armistice was signed. There seems lo be an idea 
veiy prevalent in this country that all large builders of machinery turned out machines complete themse'ves; 
this idea is erroneous, as many parts have to be bought elsewhere, and, after all, builders of very large machin- 
ery and equipment are often assembling shops only and without the support of the industry as a whole it would 
not have been a physical possibility to have accomplished the great production in most of the lines. During this 
period the Company and its management did their utmost to work together with their employees, having in 
mind at all times the building up of production for the welfare and contentment of the men. During the latter 
part of September, 1918, they were again called upon by the Government to furnish trunnion castings to be used 
in the construction of 1 4 -inch guns. These castings weigh approximately 3 5,000 pounds each. It is a matter 
of record that they turned out castings faster than any o'her plants could machine them. They were at all 
limes ahead of their schedule. The Chester Steel Castings Company also furnished several large castings to be 
used in the construction of hydraulic presses to be used in turning out the forgings. After the shipping pro- 
gram w^as under way, they w^ere called upon to give assistance along entirely different lines, necessitating 
another turn-over. They started to manufacture castings to be used by the various shipyards of this country, 
rtern frames, rudder frames, propeller wheels, anchors and miscellaneous castings for ship construction. \X^en 
the armistice ^vas signed the company had orders, direct or indirect, for the Government, w^hich w^ould have 
required about one year to produce, about equally divided between the Ordnance Department, shipyards and 
locomotive builders.

Herbert Brothers 

WILLIAM P. HERBERT. Pretidenl 
WALTER G. HERBERT. Vice-Pmideol. Treaiurei and General ManaB» 

With the exception of a scattered few small 
business houses and a number of public institutions, 
nearly a score of blocks of Broad Street, the great 
central business and travel artery, nor.h and south 
in Philadelphia, is occupied with the trade of pas- 
senger and commercial motor cars and their asso- 
ciate lines; but there is not a more notably successful 
house in "The Row" than the subject of this editorial 
sketch. 

The products of Chandler Motor Car Com- 
pany and Cleveland Motor Car Company, Cleveland, 
Ohio, are merchandised in Philadelphia territory by 
the highly-developed organization known as Herbert 
Brothers, which is the focal point of a business extend- 
ing through a radius of about 150 miles and em- 
bracing the efforts, salesrooms and service plants in 
more than 125 populous localities in eastern Penn- 
sylvania, southern New^ Jersey, Delaware, District of 
Columbia, Maryland and parts of Virginia, actually 
vitalizing the Herbert slogan: "Dealers and Instant 
Service Everywhere." 

This substantial business was the vision of the 
president, W. P. Herbert, who, in 1914, organized 
the Chandler Motor Car Company of Philadelphia 
for the purpose of wholesaling the Chandler car in 
the great territory assigned to him by the Chandler 
Company at the beginning of its manufacturing. The 
"■ offices of the Herbert Company were located in the 

Land Title and Trust Building, corner of Broad and 
Chestnut Streets. The business grew rapidly from 
the first days and soon compelled removal to larger 
quarters. The site chosen was the building in which 
the company is now housing the Cleveland car, the 
northeast corner of Broad and Race Streets. 
^ location. This was in 1915, and the corporation was 

chartered as W. P. Herbert Company. A retail department was opened on the first floor of the Abbott Building. This 
new business prospered famously and the Chandler car was seen everywhere. Mr. W. P. Herbert, the president, became 
an officer and one of the pillars of the Automobile Trade Association and a big figure in the trade generally, as his car 
loomed among the most popular vehicles on the markel. 

1916 found the business shaping toward gigantic proportions, and the executive branch w^as again recast, the 
new corporation then being known as Herbert-Cook Company. The second name was that of R^lph W. Cook also 
well known in the local automobile trade. The company's offices were continued at Broad and Race Streets with a 
service station at 1534 to 1540 Wood Street. 

1917 Mr. Cook en*ered the United States Army as a volunteer for service in the World War, and the com- 
pany's name was again changed, the corporate title being that of today, Herbert Brothers, with William P. Herbert, 
president; Walter G. Herbert, vice president, treasurer and general manager; F. Raymond Deichler, secretary. Under 
this management the business has taxed to the utmost every space and facility that has been provided to care for its 
daily increase. At the beginning of 1919 the company took over the adjoining building, the six-story concrete building, 
Nos. 203 and 205 North Broad 5treet, which, inclusive of the original location at Broad and Race Streets, is one of the 
largest and mosi complete establishments in America devoted exclusively to the sale of new motor cars. The big plant 
for service at 1534-40 Wood Street was retained and amp'ified both as to equipment and men. 

1919 was also made a notable Herbert year by the coming of the Cleveland car, which was put on the market 
early in the spring, after exhaustive laboratory and road tests. The Cleveland was handled so successfully that its 
success w^as almost instantaneous, while its daily gain in popularity has been L^nprecedented in this very conservative 
territory. This car is also a six, and its makers have closely followed the Chandler policy of giving wonderful intrinsic 
value, increasing passenger comfort and lightening weight, alon^ with maintenance of their recognized policy of low price. 

To be a Herbert Brothers' dealer requires maintenance of high standards of business, ample stock, complete 
equipment and a familiarity w^ith cars that insure the "instant service" of the Herbert slogan. Included in the roster 
of the Herbert connections are the most successful and prosperous merchants in the big towns and important trade 
centers in the several states this company covers for Chandler and Cleveland. These dealers and their men are all 
substantial citizens, who meet their civic obligations with bo*h intelligence and good cheer. In the Philadelphia house 
alone there were thirty-two enrollments in Army service: thirty-two stars on the service flag — and a number of the 
company's employes were members of the Loan Committee^, while the organization as a whole went "over the top" with 
1 00 per cent at each loan drive. 

The work of such an organization as that of Herbert Brothers, in covering such a large territory as the most 
populous portion of Pennsylvania, and the great touring roads of the better part of four other states, is a great task. 

Thousands of cars Cleveland and Chandler are sold, delivered and kept sold every year. Thousands of other makes 

are repaired, restored or equipped with modern devices for safer driving or more comfortable riding; publicity is given 
every question that affects the interests or rights of owners; aids provided for tourists; helps in enforcing or maintaining 
useful motor law^s; good road conditions are promoted. Such an organiza.ion is a public institution and a general bene- 
faction, rather than solely a commercial enterprise with profit and personal ambition in view. Every man that travels 
by car is a debtor to the men whose energy and executive ability put together such forces and have that strength of 
will and winning personality that forms the cohesive element to hold them in place.

9 — The advice of expert engineers as to the proper 
development of manufacturing methods — 

1 — A trust department constantly working in close 
co-operation w^ith its customers vv^ith the result 
that a customer knows his affairs w.ll continue 
to be well administered. 

In short, the up-to-date business man wants a business- 
building and a business-protecting Bank. 

Our position in the city's business life is no over-night 
achievement. We have been many years building the 
organization that makes the Corn Exchange the choice 
of so many successful business men.

BRENNAN, GEORGE ALEXANDER 

(Confi)nied from page 05) 
Frontier Press Company. Came to Philadelphia 
as branch manager, March 15, 1911. On the 
belief that people want accurate, up-to-date in- 
formation, and want it quickly, the Standard 
Dictionary of Facts was built. The Hn-me 
Study Outlines is a self -educator system for 
that great a-^my who have not obtained a liberal 
education when in school. Mr. Brennan has 
built this business from desk room to the larg- 
est business of its kind in the city, on the 
theory that if it is good to compile educational 
books, to publish them or to use them, it is also 
good to sell them. He mainiains that this edu- 
cational process is true salesmanship. In his 
school of salesmanship, 500 Drexel Building, he 
trains former school teachers, principals, super- 
intendents and other competent people how to 
interview the public with these educational pub- 
lications, as he himself would desire to be in- 
tervi-^-wed if the conditions were reversed. As 
a consequence, Mr. Brennan's business has in- 
creased more than 30 per cent a year for eight 
years, and in 1919 he doubled his business of 
1918. The Frontier Press Company is now 
working toward the end of its second million 
sales on the Standard Dictionary of Facts, and 
they have just begun. Mr. Brennan believes he 
has proven conclusively that any r'-al competent 
school teacher can. with training, becme a truly 
successful salesperson; that the public welcomes 
a real sales person, one who sells goods to the 
end of satisfaction of both buyer and Sf^ller; 
that the high-grade educational books sold by 
trained salespeople are of much more value to 
the customer than the same article purchased 
from an order taker; that a sr>lendid service 
can be rendered by placing a few niilUon edu- 
cational books into the homes of the American 
families .ind helping to develop the study habit 
in the home; and. finally, that the science of 
business is the science of service; he profits 
most who serves best. Cith ^lic; IndenenHent.
